nation debates the proper course of action relating to immigration, i hope we do so with a benevolent spirit and keep in mind the contribution of immigrants. martha: calling on people to do so with a benevolent spirit. no doubt speaking in part to politicians in washington as they take on this issue and his own party because back in 2004 president bush earned 44% of the latino vote but republicans have slipped significantly since then. last year's election in just this november, governor romney pulled in 27%. it was a group that they knew they were having issues with really all along and the numbers were not good as you can see on election night. let's bring in our great panel today to talk about this. brad blakeman served as deputy assistant to president george w. bush and gem my green, president of women woman's center and fox news contributor. good to have you both. >> good morning. martha: brad, president bush has been very much under the radar. he always said that is the way he wanted to be as the former president but are we seeing perhaps emergence of a new bush legacy in this?
's actions prior to that attack as gross negligence, that means there is sufficient evidence that the state department bears some responsibility for the deaths of four americans. as we first reported here at fox news, based on the classified cable there was an emergency meeting in benghazi after secretary clinton's office was specifically warned the benghazi conflict could not withstand a coordinated assault. there were ten camps within benge linked to islamist militia's as well as al-qaida. >> it's been typical the names are held for 48 hours. we don't know how many they are, what states they are from, who the families are and we would like to talk to them. >> reporter: new fox polls show by a wide margin that americans think president obama should have sent u.s. troops to benghazi to stop the 9/11 attacks. americans are divided over the administration's handling with the attack with a slim majority believing that it coast amount to a cover up. alisyn: will congress tullahoma lee get to see the complete report? >> reporter: that is an important question. a review of the regulations by fox
but there is no recourse for them unless their child committed a crime. will we see action on that, monica? >> we may because the president gave a very broad kind of mandate to this task force. i think there are a lot of parents out there, martha, who have children who they simply can not control. how heartbreaking is it to reach the point where they say i can no longer control my child. i need some external help here. i think when a tragedy like this happens, we have a tendency as a government, as a society to overreach, to overreact and maybe do the wrong thing. so i think, nothing should be done right now. i think we to find out more information about this particular context which is presumably what the president's task force is going to do, take a little bit of time here and try to sort things out. the gun control issue, look in this case, the gun control laws actually did kick in, martha. this kid went to try to buy some guns. he was turned down because he didn't want to go you there the background check. he didn't want the waiting period. so i think there is a place for reasonable gun control.
